"Call Me Dragon" demonstrates the freaked out, riff driven prog-force that the respected four-piece have become. With their love of large vintage amplifiers, big drums and high energy, passionate performances, These Monsters... deliver a huge live sound and are developing a reputation as one of the loudest and most exciting underground bands in the UK.
This Leeds quartet will kick off 2010 with shitloads of idiosyncratic style. Creating largely instrumental, frequently cacophonous and consistently transfixing songs, they rock like proper nut-jobs in a manner that’s willfully experimental but never pretentious. Their growing reputation for putting on one hell of a live show is richly deserved, too.
03. A Tide Before The Flickering Sun
In January 2010 finally they released their first full album in 500 unique handmade copies.
They play post rock and they are influenced by bands like Sigur Ros and Explosions In The Sky but also, they include parts that reminds of doom music to parts with double kick drumming that sound like metal outbursts.
They are inspired by underground clubs, friends, hunger, history of injustice, melancholic moments. This 3 songs-EP is the ending of the first two years, from the first steps together.
Influences range from the likes of Explosions In The Sky, This Will Destroy You, Caspian, God Is An Astronaut, Scraps Of Tape and many more.

Their catchy, sometimes ambient brand of molten-core will appeal to fans of The Swans and Isis, but discerning listeners will know the trio peddle a uniquely atmospheric take on angular rock. From influences that range from Wu Tang-esque drum patterns to Bailterspace style bass hooks, Kerretta released their debut 7" "Death In The Future" in 2007, and have since shared stages with the likes of Explosions In The Sky, The Breeders, Mono and Trail Of Dead. They continued to release the "Antient" EP on 12" vinyl in 2008 and finally, scattered with catchy hooks throughout, 2009 was the year their longplayer "Vilayer" was noted by reviewers in making Kerretta stand well apart from the paint by numbers delay pedal abuse bands of the past.

Generation Of Vipers
Guitarist (and engineer/producer ) Travis Kammeyer and drummer, Tim Smith met in the small but immensely talented music scene of Johnson City, TN. Upon discovering similar interests, the two formed their first band together, 24 Hour Front Desk in early 2005. After 24HFD dissolved, Kammeyer and Smith wanted to try something different. Kammeyer who had shared guitar and vocal duties in 24HFD, wanted to shift focus from vocals all together. Thus Ocoai was born with one mission: to be the loudest and heaviest band around.
Without a vocalist or for that matter a lyricist, the table was wide open for musical development. To complete the line up, guitarist Joe Armstrong and bassist Bo Dugger were brought on board. The varying musical influences of the individuals serve as a catalyst for developing songs that have a sort of push-and-pull effect on the audience. Ambient guitars swell into crunching riffs while sparse back beat rhythms develop into a tsunami-like driving force, until every accent is pounded into your brain.
After a year and half of playing shows and recording more than an albums worth of songs that were passed amongst friends, shared on social networking sites or self-packaged and sold at shows, Ocoai decided it was time to deliver a proper record. Recording in the winter and spring of 2008, Ocoai would assemble the seven songs that make up their first full-length record, Breatherman (comprising over 50 minutes worth of music).

In August due to the circumstances the money met the Rubycone and in some time they made an album together. The album linked the songs together under the idea of a sequence of pictures, designed to melt any susceptible my-life-became-better-after-I-bought-a-new-fridge housewife in each of us. Now, while the guys are struggling with the housewives in their own minds, the wheel of time makes its turn and soon we'll find out what's next on the TV of life.

02. The Chosen Ones
03. Divinity Pt.1
In 2009, they released a Promo EP of 3 tracks – the preview of the forthcoming debut album (spring 2010) – which is the very first publication of Earthache ArtLab - an art collective founded by Lorenzo Cercelletta, Lucia Violetta Gasti and Cristiano Perin (members of the band).
Being realised in a limited number of copies (#150), each piece is handmade and hand-numbered, thus unique, and almost entirely made of natural and recycled materials.
Their first release promise big things to come, it remains to see them fulfilling our expectations.
